3:1 with no sugar...this doesn't need it.

Color was crystal clear with no sediment.

Louche was the highlight of this absinthe. A bit quick forming, but not overly so.
Really pretty smoky wisps swirled up from the bottom with a nice clear layer above.

Aroma was not all that exciting...anise and a mild herbal, but with a slight musky edge.

Flavor followed the aroma; mostly anise and a light spice, with the wormwood more in the back. Again, that light musky earthly edge, but not bad tasting, just not great.

Finish was a bit weak...no complex layers, and not a strong linger.

Overall, I can see this early entry into the US market a couple years ago being very exciting, but there are so many others now that I prefer I can't see buying this.
Certainly not bad, and a good intro for a beginner to get into absinthe.
